"DID CHARLIE MAKE A MONKEY OUT OF YOU"

Well, they say about sixty billion years ago
A little fish changed to a tadpole,
Sprouted legs and grew some hands
Then it crawled out on the land,
Changed from reptile to a monkey then a man.

So today I took the Bible to my school
But the teacher said that was against the rules.
She said my grandpa's a gorilla
My dad's a chimpanzee
And my little baby brother's a baboon.

Chorus:
Did Charlie make a monkey out of you?
Do you think you should be living in a zoo?
Don't you know that it's a lie?
When it comes your turn to die
You'll find out you're not a monkey but a fool.

Well I've heard some farfetched stories in my day
But the one I heard this morning takes the cake.
Well, I'm looking in the mirror
Just checking out my rear,
But I can't find a tail growing any place!

[Repeat chorus]

So I stood up to the teach' and told the class,
"I can't swallow this baloney about our past!
Evolution really stinks,
There's too many missing links,
To believe all this is just too much to ask!"

Chorus two:
Did Charlie make a monkey out of you?
Do you think you should be living in a zoo?
Don't you know that it's a lie?
When it comes your turn to die
You'll find out you're not a monkey but a fool.

[Repeat Chorus two]

You'll find out you're not a monkey but a fool.
Don't let Charlie make a monkey out of yo-u!-
